Chicken Caprese Salad with Balsamic Fig Glaze


By the end of September I’m usually yearning to make hot soups and hearty stews. But since I’m reluctant to let go of summer, I thought I’d combine the hot and cold and make the perfect Autumn Salad… Chicken Caprese Salad with Balsamic Fig Glaze. {PS if you’re a vegetarian or you just don’t fancy meat then it’s just as nice with the chicken left out!)…

Chicken Caprese Salad

What you need…

  • Chicken
  • Lettuce
  • Plum Tomatoes
  • Mix of Peppers
  • Red Onion
  • Mozzarella

Right well, I don’t think you really need to be told how to make a salad! But in essence, what makes this salad great for that transition from Summer to Autumn is the warm chicken and the hot pepper and onion mixed with the cool salad. So grill your chicken breast and cut in to slices, leave to cool slightly. Whilst your chicken is grilling, cut some pepper and red onion in to thin strips. In a hot pan, add some coconut oil and fry your onion and pepper until soft. On plate now add your lettuce, tomatoes (quartered) and mozzarella. Top with your peppers and onions and your chicken on top.

Balsamic Fig Glaze

You know I’m all about ease when it comes to cooking so I’m going to recommend an absolute gorgeous glaze that will save you hours of reducing and will be just as tasty. I use the Tesco Fig Balsamic Glaze. It’s £1.50 and can be used to glaze, marinade, drizzle, dip & decorate. Perfect.

  1. Caprese is my favourite salad ever. I could eat that combination at any time of year, but always with basil. I will have to give it a try with the glaze 🙂
